Addressing a two-day workshop organised by South India Teachers, Lecturers and Professors Organisation (SITLPO) on New Education Police here on Thursday, Narayana said that the Central government’s interference in higher education has increased after NDA government came to power.

“Those who questioned the BJP interference in education were persecuted, harassed and were dubbed as anti-nationals,” he said stressing on creating awareness among the students, teachers and intellectuals on the imminent danger posed by the BJP-led NDA government for the autonomous functioning of the universities and other national level institutions.

All India Federation of Teachers Organisation (AIFTO) general secretary Arunkumar said the meet is part of the nation-wide exercise aimed to mobilise teachers for a common school education. He said that the privatisation and commercialisation of education is dangerous to the society.
